6 months dutasteride oral and some topical and I think I need to add something more. Balding has stopped in crown hairline looks the same some hairs are longer and thicker but some still short and thin. Seems like duta isn't strong enough for some poeple. Pisses me off. I'm on 2mg daily now again oral. But recently I'm shedding more hair in shower not sure if it's because I keep playing around with the dosage from 0.5mg daily for 5 months then upped to 1mg and 2mg for 1 month and now shedding again.

Hello all.
I have been a lurker in this forum and in several otheres for quite some time now.
I will be making a post about my experience with several hair loss treatments (minoxidil 5%, ru58841 5%, topical finasteride, oral finasteride, minoxidil 5% with retinoic acid and topical dutasteride).
Right now i just want to share my experience with topical dutasteride.
Well i ordered topical dutasteride from 2 places: Minoxidil Max and Fue Clinic.
The one from minoxidil max was used in 2 consecutive days (in the first day i aplied 1 ml and in the second i apllied 0,5 ml, if i recall correcly).
Well i got side effects, and they were the same sides that i got from finasteride: slight fatigue, lower quality erection, lower libido, and gyno.
Imedietly after i ordered from Fue Clinic. I waited like 1 and a half weeks and it arrived. The sides from minoxidil max went away slowing but surely in the 1 and a half weeks that i waited. When i got the topical dutasteride from Fue Clinic applied it this monday (14/6/2021) alongside with my minoxidil and in the next day and until now i have been experiencing side effects again. I think they are worse than the ones from minoxidil max but that could be because i had 2 very bad and short nights of sleep. The sides are fatigue, lower quality erection, lower libido, and gyno. Now 2 things i want to point out. I used the topical dutasteride right after shower when my scalp was dry, and then i applied the minoxidil like 1 or 2h later right before bed. The thing is, minoxidil has of course PG and Ethanol has solvents and carriers and that might have made the dutasteride to go systemic. Also the minoxidil i used has retinoic acid (0,025%) and i read studies that retinoic acid when aplied in the skin can increase percutaneous absorbtion (it increases minoxidil absorbtion x3, i read in a study). So i am going to start taking 10% minoxidil with no Retinoic acid. Thats all. I would like to know your thoughts.
Oh the minoxidil i use is Dualgen-5R from minoxidil max, and the on i am going to start using is Tugain 10% from minoxidil beards.
Bro I take 2mg orally and I don't feel a thing other than reduced sperm and worse sleep. Crazy how it affects people differently.

Has anybody tried topical dutasteride from Minoxidilmax? I am about to pull trigger on this one. finasteride + minoxidil has not given me much results.

I have been taking a cocktail of different vitamins and now recently my sperm is getting much better and ejaculation is pretty normal wtf? Is it possible that my body is getting used to dutasteride and side effects are going away after months of usage or is it the vitamin cocktail I have been taking? Because it happened after I took the vitamins. I heard side effects can appear for weeks or months and then stop all of a sudden. Read about a guy that had brutal side effects on dutasteride for the first 5-6 months and then it completely went away. Reading countless posts about this now with similar experience. So guys ride it out and take cocktail of vitamins don't quit so early.

A little update I can't keep taking 2mg orally each day my sleep is just so poor quality. I had to go home today from work I felt like fainting and people noticed I looked tired. I can't go on like this, I have to give in and use only topical twice weekly.

Maybe take 0.5 mg instead 2
I did that at first for 5 months it still affected my sleep. Now the only side effect that is bothersome is my sleep. It's cause duta blocks allopregnanolone almost completely, I read its good for sleep it's a relaxant and sedative neurosteroid. People here apply dutasteride topically without even derma stamping and still get side effects. So why even bother with needling? It goes systemic anyway despite 528 Daltons. I also noticed needling causes breakage of hair everywhere. The needles will hit your hair too not just the skin and more will go systemic if u needle.

but i will try 1.5 mm one week maybe to be sure it goes well in scalp
Considering people here have used fue clinic and minoxidil max dutasteride with side effects without needling so using a 1.5mm is a very bad idea. I used 1.5mm before and applied 5mg of duta to scalp I had alot of nipple pain that day it will 100% go systemic. 0.5mm is safer. Even sonic temples claims results on hairline and he don't even needle.

i guess sometimes derma roll will increase systemic absorption but i will slow down after 2-3 weeks so it's ok i guess
